It wasn’t a matter of IF this incident was to happen, it was simply a matter of when. The brawl between Coco Crisp and James Shields was induced just the day before, when Crisp took a very late slide and slammed directly into Rays second baseman Akinori Iwamura. The very next day, Crisp came up to bat and was immediately hit by a pitch that Shields threw. Seconds later, what was supposed to have been a lovely baseball game at Fenway park turned into your typical Fight Night. Crisp, I’d just be happy Shields didn’t hit you in the head with that pitch.
